Animals are not immune from being attacked by humans. This little jack Russell was sleeping peacefully when someone tried to break into the house. He jumped up and tried to defend the family.
The family managed to bolt the door but the JRT ended up on the wrong side. The person did run away but not before he had attacked the game little protecter with a Samurai Sword.
He was lucky that there was only the head wound although l suspect that he received several kicks at the same time. It looks bad, a general anaesthetic clip, stitch and clean up and he trotted proudly out of the surgery the next day. Head held high, but l bet a mighty headache.
This was one of many animals mainly dogs l have seen over the years that have been attacked by people for all sorts of reasons. Including eating or messing up drug stashes, not liking the colour of the animal, the dog threw up in the house/car, it was noisy, it smelt, it bit them or their animal/child and many other reasons.
Others are rambling reasons. The strangest l have dealt with was a phone call from a female. She rambled on and on at fast speed about the …? she had locked in a basket. It? had screamed and screamed and now it? was quiet and her friend said it? was dead cause the eyes were staring and open. She did not mean to be cruel just felt it? Was better in the basket where they? Could not get to it?.
I had to cut her short and say “I am sorry but are you talking about a dog or cat or what?”
She said “l told you l have just come out of a mental institution l am schizophrenic it depends who l am as to what animal l have”.
I am afraid l gave up about here and told her l thought the animal was dead to contact RSPCA for help.
Jack Russell Terrier attacked with a Samurai sword. The fetching head bandage was just a temporary measure till he was stitched up.
